This book remains notable however, as one of the earliest that mention Arthur . (Summary...

LibriVox recording of The Ghost Pirates by William Hope Hodgson. Read by Mark Nelson The Ghost Pirates is a powerful account of a doomed and haunted ship on its last voyage, and of the terrible sea-devils (of quasi-human aspect, and perhaps the spirits of bygone buccaneers) that besiege it and finally drag it down to an unknown fate. With its command of maritime knowledge, and its clever selection of hints and incidents suggestive of latent horrors in nature, this book at times reaches enviable...
